      From Secretary/Treasurer Charles (Chuck) Addleman

      Hi Brothers and Sisters, I will finish my position here at Local 8 on December 31, 2016.  I will return to my position at the Penn State Bakery on January 1, 2017. Thank you for your support for the last 11 years while I served as Secretary Treasurer and Business Agent. I have enjoyed serving our members over the years.


      Penn State football is less than one month away! This season Teamsters Local 8 members are invited out for two separate Organize Labor Appreciation Days with Penn State Football. Promotional rate tickets are on still on sale for Union members throughout Pennsylvania for the Big Ten home opener vs. Minnesota (October 1st) and Senior Day against Michigan State games (November 26th). Kick off times have yet to be announced for both games. All tickets will be discounted at least $17 off the public single game price, as opposed to the public single game rate. Teamsters will also be able to purchase a discounted car parking pass for each game. Simply click on the image below (or link below the image) and enter the promo code TEAMSTER to begin purchasing your tickets. For more information, to purchase more than 10 tickets, or a parking pass please contact James Grecco with Penn State Athletics at 814-867-2544 or JEG45@PSU.EDU.

      No Texting

      We DO NOT recommend members to use text messaging as a way of communication with their direct supervisor or any management level personnel.

      If you allow/take part in texting with your direct supervisor or any management level personnel you are  creating a pattern and giving the impression it is okay to use texting as a way of communicating.   If just ONE TIME technology fails and you do not receive an important text, they will take disciplinary action.  It has happened—STOP TEXTING with your direct supervisor or any management level personnel. 

      Management needs to communicate directly with you by verbally talking with you in person or on the phone.  Texting is not an acceptable way of communication. 

      The next time your supervisor texts you, text back: 

                       “I have been advised by my Union representative to inform you that I will no longer accept text messages from you on my personal cell phone either at work or at home.”

      Once you send that text they are not authorized to text you again and do not respond to any text messages. 

      Keep in mind, you are required to give the University a phone number so that management can contact you when you are not at work.   You should give them a land-line number.  If you do not have a land line you should consider getting one.
